    Handel’s score—a synopsis ACT I—The two-section Ouverture to Alexander Balus finds Handel anxious to enter the drama as soon as possible: the opening is grand and rather serious, the following fugue busy. Alexander returns from battle in triumph: first woodwind, then trumpets and timpani, then the horns and finally the chorus of Asiates.
